So, we’ve bought to maintain our eye on that. However we’ve bought to do two — we’ve got to do a two-pronged technique right here, Maria. Primary is we’ve bought to manage spending. Moreover, we’ve got bought to develop the GDP. We’re not going to have the ability to reduce our manner out of this. We simply need to be cheap, wise, and accountable in terms of spending will increase or the place we spend. However we’ve bought to develop the GDP and there [are] solely two methods to develop the GDP, you both reduce taxes otherwise you scale back rules or you may have a mix of these two. If we will do this, develop GDP, improve income, and maintain the road on spending, we get out of this with out slicing protection.”
